Our kids went through the Fire Rescuers and Police Department Youth Academy programs and gave them both rave reviews. Kids get to live the dream of sliding down the fire station pole during the Rescuers program, and the Boston Harbor tour on a real police powerboat during Youth Academy were highlights.
